Welcome Back to SOCOM 4–With Free Maps and Weapons!

We’re very happy today to announce that SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs is now offering free maps and weapons to all PS Plus users! You might remember that we gave away the classic SOCOM map “Abandoned” and a couple of exclusive shotguns as an incentive to pre-order the game through GameStop. All PlayStation Plus users can now download “Abandoned” and the shotguns free for the next month! For those of you without Plus yet, don’t worry–your time will come shortly. Recall the blog announcement a couple weeks back announcing that, as a token of appreciation, the PlayStation Network will be giving all users 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership, coming soon. After a month of PlayStation Plus availability, “Abandoned” and the shotguns will continue to be available for SOCOM Pro members.

But that’s not all. When we announced SOCOM Pro shortly before SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs hit stores, we promised that we’d be delivering the oft-requested M16 and AK-47 shortly after release. We’re happy today to not only say that they’re almost here, but that they’re being packaged alongside a set of new competitive multiplayer maps!

Dubbed the SOCOM Pro Assault Pack, this bundle will be available as a free download exclusively to SOCOM Pro members and features three all-new competitive multiplayer maps: “Red Line”, “Double Cross” and “Driftwood”, as well as two fan-favorite weapons, the M16 and AK-47. The maps, inspired by missions from the single-player campaign, have been designed to feature tighter spaces with intense 8 vs. 8 matches in mind (not that 32-player skirmishes aren’t a blast on all three maps).

Assault Pack Maps:

“Red Line” – A monorail depot highlights this small and highly war-torn urban location.

“Double Cross” – A plane has crashed into a small mountain village, leaving wreckage and burning debris scattered throughout the area.

“Driftwood” – A small fishing village with a tight layout results in intense close-quarter battles.

Assault Pack Weapons:

M16 – This highly accurate Spec Ops weapon is great at range and, with a suppressor gained at Mod Level 2, can be used in stealthier situations as well.

AK-47 – This Insurgent weapon is difficult to control but inflicts a high amount of damage. It’s also capable of holding a large amount of ammo at Mod 5, making a very deadly option for aggressive players.

And last but certainly not least, don’t forget that our Double XP bonus promotion is currently underway and affects not only every game type but both your player level and weapon progression!

“Abandoned” and the pre-order shotguns are now available for free to all PlayStation Plus members while the SOCOM Pro Assault Pack will be available this month as a free download exclusively for SOCOM Pro members, so be sure to check back for more news in the coming weeks. SOCOM Pro comes free with new copies of SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, and is also available for purchase on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.

I just got onto PSN with my MediaGo, since I can’t use WLAN with my wireless. I downloaded all the Dissidia DLC – only to get error coded when I tried to transfer. It’s not my cord, or my PSP, since I downloaded the system update and my older games fine. It’s JUST that DLC. The error code is 80048104. What gives?

Aaannnddd, what about UK and Rest of EU? Will we get similair add-ons?

+ IIn3wII_NuMb3rZ on June 2nd, 2011 at 8:07 pm said:

@ #6 it is free for regular PSN users. if u bought SOCOM brand new and not being cheap and bought it used u would have the SOCOM pro code on the back of your game manual to scratch off gettin u both the map and the guns and the future upcoming dlc all free. Only those who bought the game used will miss out and i dont mind that cuz devs get no money from used game sales so this was put in place to encourage ppl to buy the game new

thanks got the free content soon as the store came…does socom pro give access to all the upcoming socom 4 content or will there still be some that has to be purchased seperately?? and when will we see more classic socom maps?


23

+ Thane_of_Fife on June 2nd, 2011 at 8:47 pm said:

@NinjaNabs and#19, u guys got to realize this isn’t sony on this blog post its Zipper, the ppl behind Socom 4, so its useless and beyond rude posting tht stuff on this blog, if something post on something like the playstation store blog, insteadof other blogs which has no relation to ur topic of concern,

and wow ppl could be rude to developers. Give some slack to Zipper, they’re a great studio, MAG and Socom 4 were better than wht ppl could said they were, both great games overall, I’ll be looking forward to the free weopens, ALL SHOTGUNS, hopefully its all gud…

i bought socom 4 the day it came out wich was before the psn went down and i got to redeem my code that it came with for the socom pro but it just gave me a shotgun..does that mean im in the socom pro or do i got to buy it?

thanks looks great. really love socom 4. does the pre order code that i got with socom 4 cover me for the socom pro membership? :)

+ gena760 on June 2nd, 2011 at 9:43 pm said:

@ NinjaNabs yeah i agree with you too. We should get Escalation for free too.

Add trophies and fix the matchmaking. I tired of getting owned by people 40 levels higher than I am.

THIS IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS LILO AND STITCH!!!! ALMOST. GOOD FOR ALL 15 PEOPLE WHO BOUGH THIS GAME I GUESS. HOW ABOUT A REAL PS PLUS UPDATE?

Cool thanks :)

+ x1STP_KLOSRx on June 2nd, 2011 at 10:05 pm said:

We have a new map pack but we still can’t join a match with our friends? It’s completely unacceptable that I have to spend 15 minutes trying to join my friend because the match(es) fill up way to quickly. No matchmaking was acceptable many years ago but now it’s just laziness on Zipper Interactive’s part.

+ ToaHahli on June 2nd, 2011 at 10:32 pm said:

Escalation for free? Ha! Like Activision would agree to anything that would cost them money by giving out free map packs.


35

+ Happy_316 on June 2nd, 2011 at 10:44 pm said:

the pro package makes me regret preordering the game lol oh well i do love the game but its sad not getting the pro stuff for free.

@ninjanabs Nobody cares about Black ops, worst FPS ever created. Sony should start supporting real games like KILLZONE 3 and BATTLEFIELD BAD COMPANY 2 and for the love of god start the marketting campaign for TWISTED METAL, Half of my friends didnt even know untli a week ago that Twisted metal is returning. seriously, Twisted metal and Uncharted 3 are the best games coming out in 2011 and theres even no hype for Twisted metal.
also Killzone 3 steel rain dlc for free will be apreciated.

It seems that no one answers our comments on this site but what the heck when is black ops escalation maps going to be out????? And I’m not asking u haterz ok!! it’s a simple question that apparently ain’t getting answered. And to all the haterz… Ain’t no one bumping their gums about yur dumb questions and games u play so stop hatin!!!!

+ MCstatiK on June 3rd, 2011 at 1:29 am said:

Wow! Wish I had Socom 4! What a serious package for everyone owning it. Congrats!

And on a sidenote.. @Lokiroo420!!!! I know puberty’s difficult, but once you make your way through it, things like “personal views” and “addiction to cussing” will start to change… Just bear with it.. New horizons are out there kiddo.. Don’t give up hope!! XD

how about offering another mp demo of this game i downloaded on the last day i never got to play it????


41

+ B-MORE–BOMBER on June 3rd, 2011 at 2:39 am said:

the black op maps come out 30 days after they come out on the poopbox so if it came out on the poopbox the 3rd of may it should come out the 3rd of june or what ever day it came out on the poopbox

I haven’t been a SOCOM 4 fan for years, but I absolutely love this. I’m a PS+ member too, so I’ll be all over this. Thanks Zipper.

thanks for the ps store

+ VOODOO-x- on June 3rd, 2011 at 5:22 am said:

How about you guys finish the game first? A multiplayer game with no party system and no lobbies? Maybe fix the list of bugs from the beta first? This series has turned into such a joke!

+ midknight24 on June 3rd, 2011 at 6:41 am said:

Did they even update the store today? as I haven’t seen anything new in there


48

+ ToaHahli on June 3rd, 2011 at 6:51 am said:

$10 says we won’t have another update for a whole ‘nother week.


49

+ ToaHahli on June 3rd, 2011 at 6:54 am said:

Oh yeah, and Black Ops does suck. Next to MW2 it’s the worst Call of Duty ever made. The only reason I even play it is for Zombies.

+ midknight24 on June 3rd, 2011 at 6:54 am said:

If the updated anything today it was DLCs and that is kind of lame, what about all the games the were releases or launched that we are evidently still missing out on? No offense to Zipper or anyone who wants the DLCs but really a whole update with nothing but DLCs to games I don’t have anymore?
